Today I am treating you to one of Puerto Rico’s favorite desserts. Children love it because once molded it trembles-jiggles (temblar means to tremble and this is how it got its name). I love it because it’s easy, sweet and delicioso.
It reminds me of my childhood when our nanny would make it for us and she would let me sit in a corner making sure I scraped the pot clean of all leftover pudding. Sweet memories. I still scrape the pot…old habits never die.
4 cups of coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn starch
1 stick cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
garnish: ground cinnamon, cinnamon stick, toasted coconut
In a sauce pan mix dry ingredients and cinnamon stick. Over medium heat whisk the milk making sure scraping sides to have a smooth texture. Continue to cook using your whisk until thick. Pour into molds or a bunt pan. Place in refrigerator and let set for at least and hour or more depending on the mold you use.
Serve and garnish.
